A little bit impatient are you...?

To totally finish at 4.600"; around $400.00 to $500.00 is the going rate for a good job.

we wouldn't need to change the pistons and sleeves if we would just quit putting are toes over the edge !!! but the way I do it .you can change a sleeve without pushing the other cylinders out of round and I've had that ol' triple "7" for 40+ years and it will do a nice job in good hands !!

Randy, I didn't realize I had posted the inquiry twice
The post was done from my phone. I'm very sorry if it look like I was rushing for an answer. I do apologize I don't write much on here but I do read a lot on this form.
Thank you giving the information I was needing.

Frank, what size engine you are building? It appears it's going to be a monster. I think for me a 598 is going to be plenty for street /build.

My next question is who does this line of of work for living? I will need to have ship to you. The machine shop here wanted me to rent or buy the torque plates. by the end of July I will be ready to start buying all the other parts needed to put this build together after 3 years on hold.
